Do you love cookies? In our household, we all look forward to when I make homemade, still warm cookies. With winter being here, however, I wanted to try something a little different. I have always loved ginger snaps and have been struggling to find a recipe that is not only tasty, but fairly easy to make . Lately, I found a ginger snap recipe that isn’t just a tasty base, but also dipped in white chocolate! I have been playing with this recipe and found that is great for entertaining or as gifts! We think your family will love this cookie recipe just as much as ours!

If you don’t like white chocolate (my husband detests it) I found it works great with dark chocoalte, milk chocolate, and even semi sweet chocolate! For more fun, consider melting different types of chocolates and let the kids dip each cookie themselves!

Note: Special thanks to my friends Shannon at Livingston Creatives for helping me with this recipe and pictures!

    We love Ginger snaps. My father is on a restricted diet, and we left the salt out of the recipe, and they were still delicious. We dipped in milk chocolate, and I recommend that too. Thank you for the recipe. 5 stars.

    These look fantastic! Ginger snaps are by far my favorite type of cookie, so I’m always looking for the perfect recipe. I think I’ll add some chopped crystallized ginger to the mix — it really kicks any ginger snap recipe up a notch!

    Thanks so very much for the Delicious recipe for White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Snap Cookies! I, personally, love ginger snap cookies, however, I made them one year along with other cookies which I generally make to give out to my neighbors. I remember them telling me that that was the least liked cookie I’ve ever made! I though they were good, however, I guess they don’t like ginger snaps. This recipe is terrific! I love dunking them in the white chocolate! If I make them again, I will be definitely following your lead as to dipping them! Thanks so very much! Michele 🙂

    Those cookies look delicious! I like how you suggested using different chocolates to dip multiple cookies; changing up the flavor!

    I love Ginger Snaps, especially, with a cold glass of milk. I saw these on Pinterest and they had piped a couple of little green leaves and some read berries. They looked so festive for the holidays.

    We haven’t had ginger snaps in a few years since my mom passed away….she always made them for my husband during the holidays. Thanks for the recipe, it’s my turn to start carrying on the tradition with a new twist(dipping in chocolate)
    Happy Holidays to you and yours,

    I like ginger snaps but not white chocolate. I will dip the ginger snaps in dark chocolate instead of white chocolate, it will be dark chocolate dipped ginger snaps. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    I love Chocolate!! I’ve never tried real Ginger Snaps. These look very tasty

    (WHITE CHOCOLATE DIPPED GINGER SNAP COOKIES) I have not made these in ages, looks like I will be making them real soon for my family again-

  36. Dawn Smith December 29, 2014 at 11:00 am - Reply

    These look yummy. Do you have a recipe for dark chocolate or semi-sweet? I’m not to big on white chocolate, but I love gingersnaps, so I’ll make these without chocolate if it came down to it. Either way looks like a rather easy recipe to follow, and me, my great niece and her friend (both 3 years old) are sure to have fun making these at our little New Years Eve party I’m planning for them!

    Thanks for sharing

    Ginger snaps are some of my favorite cookies. I have never had them dipped in white chocolate but sure does sound good.

  41. lisa May 26, 2015 at 11:30 am - Reply

    I’m not fond of ginger. I do like the idea if dipping a cookie in white chocolate. That or butterscotch or peanut butter. Any flavor you like.
